Ep 60 Dinner Party
Welcome to the People Person's Paper Podcast! Each week, hosts Hilton Price and Brian Sittler and their guests chronologically examine every episode of the hit NBC sitcom The Office, analyzing story-lines and character development, and identifying that special something that made this seemingly unremarkable remake of a BBC TV show into a cultural phenomenon.
We're bringing our babysitter to dinner for Episode 60! This week, Brian and Hilton welcome writer and comedian Landry Miller to the show to talk about what might be the most talked about episode of the whole series, Episode 13 of Season 4, Dinner Party! That's right, we're there, and so is Michael, Jan, Jim, Pam, Andy, Angela, Dwight, and...... did we ever get her name? Anyway, with a little crafty planning, Michael finally gets Jim and Pam (and Andy and Angela) to come over for dinner. But are any of the staff ready for what they'll encounter when they visit Michael and Jan's home? The hand-shaped chairs, the office, the workspace, the broken glass door, the camera in the bedroom... There's just so much wrong with everything, and so much right in this episode. It's no surprise it's one of the most talked about episodes in all of television. Relive the cringe, the laughs, and the osso buco, and hear our take on all of it, at the link below!
